With 61,381 people, Caldwell, Idaho is a small city. There are just 2 nursing homes there, which does not offer you too many choices. These facilities did not really stand out from a quality point of view either. The city was given a city grade of C, which is not one of our better grades at the city level. Nationally, most cities received a higher grade than this city. The best part of this city's profile is is its short-term care score. Short-term care grades are discussed in the next paragraph.
We wanted to note that this city's nursing grade was superior to its overall grade. In fact, we gave Caldwell a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. Short-term care ratings are critical for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This city's second best category is nursing, where we awarded it a B- in this area. In our final two categories, we gave Caldwell grades of B- and D for our inspections and long-term care areas respectively. It goes without saying that this city's long-term care rating really pulled down its overall grade.
